Fauci Obliterated By Sen. Ted Cruz Over War Of Words Concerning ‘Science’

Texas Sen. Ted Cruz shot back at Dr. Anthony Fauci in a brutal tweet thread that struck back at the White House Chief Medical Advisor for things stated during an interview he conducted with CBS where he condemned Republicans for using rhetoric that he claims is “dangerous” aimed at him and, by extension, science.

Man, you have to have an orbital sized ego to make that conflation, don’t you? Geez.

“Fauci is an unelected technocrat who has distorted science and facts in order to exercise authoritarian control over millions of Americans,” Cruz stated in a post he made on Twitter Sunday evening. “He lives in a liberal world where his smug ‘I REPRESENT science’ attitude is praised.”

Fauci made headlines earlier in the day during an interview on CBS News’s Face the Nation in which he criticized the “noise” from Republicans including Cruz and Sen. Rand Paul, who have accused him of lying about funding gain-of-function research. In making his case, he equated science to himself.

“They’re really criticizing science, because I represent science. That’s dangerous. To me, that’s more dangerous than the slings and the arrows that get thrown at me. And if you damage science, you are doing something very detrimental to society long after I leave,” he went on to say during the interview.

Again, wow. The hubris of this guy. Surely folks can tell this man is delusional.

Moments earlier in the interview, Fauci, who is the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, quipped about the Capitol riot on Jan. 6 when asked about Cruz, one of several GOP lawmakers who has attacked him.

“Yeah. I have to laugh at that. I should be prosecuted? What happened on Jan. 6, senator?” Fauci continued.

“Yeah. I have to laugh at that. I should be prosecuted? What happened on Jan. 6, senator?” Fauci fired at Cruz.

Cruz was one of the GOP senators who committed to challenging the results of the 2020 election in the lead-up to Jan. 6. Although the riot disrupted the process of counting the electoral votes, President Joe Biden’s victory was soon affirmed.

“The NIH said last month that one particular group under scrutiny, EcoHealth Alliance, violated grant rules in failing to report research findings on mice becoming sicker when infected by a certain bat coronavirus. The nonprofit group contends it did meet reporting requirements,” the WE report stated.

“Fauci has denied that the National Institutes of Health funded risky gain-of-function research, and the NIH rejected claims that it provided money that went toward such work led to the pandemic, but critics including Paul contend the NIH letter confirms that the Wuhan lab collaborator had indeed been conducting gain-of-function research,” the report continued.

Cruz continued his systematic dismantling of Fauci in additional tweets:

And then Sen. Rand Paul tagged in on this brutal smackdown of Fauci, tweeting, “”The absolute hubris of someone claiming THEY represent science. It’s astounding and alarming that a public health bureaucrat would even think to claim such a thing, especially one who has worked so hard to ignore the science of natural immunity.”

You don’t mess with Texas, Fauci. Or Kentucky.

Or the rest of the United States for that matter.
